Lyrics "polyphony"

I've come across the need to temporarily split lyrics into two "stanzas" (in repeated sections).

The code I am confronted with does this by using some kind of polyphony construct, but this ends up creating a new \Lyrics context that is added below the lowest staff instead of directly below the original Lyrics context:

\version "2.19.80"

notesA = \relative {
  c'' d e d | c8 [ b ] c  d  c4 g

notesB = \relative {
  c' d e d | c b c e

words = \lyricmode {
  A B C D
      e -- f g
    \new Lyrics {
      E F G
  C  G

\score {
    \new Staff \new Voice = "upper" \notesA
    \new Lyrics \lyricsto "upper" \words
    \new Staff \new Voice = "lower" \notesB

How can I make sure the split lyrics end up next to each other?

Thanks for any hints
